babycdq can anyone explain this? Potential output exceeds AD.Then the suppliers will decrease the product they provided. Then the output will fall. Which will also cause the cost of supply increase. Isn't it?
aabensan Someone, please explain. I'm confused. TIA!
khalifa92 just think about it logically without trying hard; if we are behind the potential means we are in a recession,
we are either in stagflation or normal recession but since nothing mentioned about a stagflation means normal recession. and low prices and output are characteristics of a recession.
